More and more people seem to be wearing the over the hear headphones nowadays, after a period of in ear headphones being the most popular choice. These ones from skullcandy are a great addition to the over the ear range.
With it being over the ear headphones it can block out more background noise, as the bits that go over your ear cover the whole hear allowing less outside noise to get in. It does this quite well, it doesn't completely block out outside noise, and quite a bit can still get in, but it is much better than in ear headphones I have tried.
The size of the head phones can be adjusted with the side being able to slide up and down on that it can be made to fit to different size heads to a size that best suits the user. For me the headphones fit well and from the amount of slide left to adjust would say that it would be big or small enough to fir most people. It is very easy to adjust the slide simply push or pull the sides up or down to adjust, however there isn't a way to lock them into place but it does lock a bit by itself, and I have never had any problems of it self adjusting without me wanting it to.
The headphones can be foled up to make them smaller and more suitable for travelling which is good. However the problem with this is that in the fold areas when wearing the headphones, quite often a piece of hair gets caught in the folding parts and pulls a bit of hair out, which is quite painful,a nd does happen quite regularly. Its not enough to make turn you bald but it is quite annoying.
The sound quality is very good and is a lot clearer than the apple headphones I used to have and also can produce a much louder noise, probably partly due to outside noise being blocked out.
The wire is quite long a should be more than enough to reach any device you might want to plug it into that you would use headphones for, and not so long that the wires are getting in the way all the time.
The headphones can also easily fit around the neck when you want to keep them on but not use them, and a cushion base at the top makes it more comfortable, for when round your neck or on your head.
These headphones can be brought for £17.99 from amazon, and is great value for money, and compared to most headphones of the same price has a much better quality.
Overall these are a great pair of head phones with good sound quality and at a good price. While sometimes I did find my hair getting caught in them, I still think they are great, and much prefer them in the in ear headphones.
